Had from bottle poured into snifter.
Appearance: Pour a light amber into the glass, with a large white foamy head that dissapates nicely to form great lacing and a cap that stays on throughout the tasting.
Smell: Get a wonderful fragrance of grapefruit and orange citrus, with a smooth integration of some pine and skunk weed as the glass warms.
Taste: The flavor profile follows the smell to the letter as the hops come in. A spectacular balance of sweet malts that completely come together to form a really smooth Imperial IPA. The piney flavors interact nicely with the malts, never letting one take over the other completely. Never get even a hint of the 10% ABV.
Mouthfeel: Very nicely done with a smooth, almost creamy character. The carbonation plays well, leaving a wonderful clean finish to an amazingly complex beer.
Overall: Makes me want to enjoy other mosaic hoped beers, however doubtful I am that they will be this good. I am alway impressed with Crux Fermentation Project, and the have definitely done it again.

375 bottle Derek A. shared tonight... Pours clear golden with a decent enough white head and lacing.
Aroma is holy hoppy!! Wowzers... Big mosaic (I guessed Mosaic before Derek dropped the info :-) Huge/light fruity hoppiness with a bit of melon and something that I guess is floral hops... That said, this is an amazing nose.
Big bitterness with perfect malty drinkability... light malt with melon hops and a bit of floral essence.. so very drinkable.. I would love Crux all the time.. the hops get a bit catty on the finish, but I am not complaining that hard. Catty vs. Amazing DIPA... Crux wins.
